Jet Set Radio and other SEGA games are currently free on Steam

2 min read


Is there anything in life better than free stuff? Yes, there actually is and my list would include a free rubber Batman costume with extra hard nipples, a Harley Davidson 883 cruiser and possibly a Kit Kat right now. But I’ll take what I can get. Every year, SEGA usually throws its hat into an anti-Valentines ring, asking players to Make War, not love.

They’re back this year, with a few free titles to keep you glued to your burning LED monitor instead of locking lips and sucking face with your significant other. This year, you can grab Jet Set Radio, Sega Classics, Golden Axe, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, Hell Yeah! Pimp My Rabbit Pack and Hell Yeah! Virtual Rabbit Missions all for gratis on Steam.

You can thank the folks who are currently battling it out in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2, Total War: Attila and Company of Heroes 2. Those players are busy waging the greatest of wars so that certain games can be unlocked. Dawn of War 2 won round one, and is still currently in the lead for round 2 of the promotion which includes more games such as the rather excellent and underrated Binary Domain, Streets of Rage 2 and Condemned: Criminal Origins.

It’s a nifty promotion, for games you probably have or aren’t that interested in. Give Jet Set Radio a try however. It was one of the very best games ever released on the Sega Dreamcast before it went belly-up, and it hasn’t aged too badly at all. Or spend some time blikseming that little potion hobbit in Golden Axe for more of that sweet blue goo that keeps you charged up in the classic action game.

I’m not saying that I have an addiction, but throwing an axe at a Pick ‘n Pay clerk who was unpacking Powerade bottles is probably why I’m banned from those shops.
